    Illusionist's "Improved Minor Illusion" ideas

    Really nifty idea. That makes me think that the ability should have read "If you don't use your action to cast a spell, you may cast minor illusion as a bonus action." I would find that way more useful...and drive way more creativity...than as written.

    5E It's official, WOTC hates Rangers (Tasha's version of Favored Foe is GARBAGE)

    Actually, I hear from my inside sources that WotC is fairly neutral about the Ranger class. It’s specifically @Gladius Legis they hate, and the Ranger is just collateral damage.

    5E Unearthed Arcana: Drakewarden and Way of the Ascendant Dragon

    Meepo is one of my favorite NPCs. Largely because when we played through that module (on roll20 at the beginning of the pandemic) Meepo started off timid and unassuming. But then he kept rolling critical hits at clutch moments, and his self-image grew with every killing blow.

    5E Unearthed Arcana: Drakewarden and Way of the Ascendant Dragon

    Interesting (from Draconic Discipline): Have we seen that particular mechanic, i.e. "use it until it succeeds", anywhere else? I like it. The other thing to note is that the higher level abilities all get one or more free uses, and then you can use them additional times by spending Ki. This...

    5E Things You Would Rather Do Than Have A PC Kender?

    I wonder if this was the point of contention with wotc.

    General Who coined the phrase "murder hobo"

    In related news, I was not able to find any YouTube videos of flint-knapping that predated 2015, so I’m starting to doubt this whole “cavemen did it” theory.

    5E Kensei Monk - how was it for you?

    I'm loving my Kensai. (Or, I was, until we suspended in-person gatherings and started a new campaign on roll20.) I know the white room theorycrafters think it's not the absolute best class/subclass combination, but it works perfectly with my concept. First, she's not a "monk" she's a...

    General Who coined the phrase "murder hobo"

    Lobelia Sackville-Baggins, I believe. She didn't mean it as a compliment.

    General Adventure Begins D&D introductory boardgame

    I received mine and opened the box. Wasn't sure what to expect so I can't say whether I'm pleased or disappointed. Haven't played it with the family yet, but will report when I do. (Caveat: both of my children are younger than the recommended "10+" age.) One thing I like, that differs from...

    5E Finding someone by scent in a city

    I would say that if the dogs are trained to this task, and they have an item, then yes it works. Good solution to a problem. No dice rolls needed. All that's needed is some colorful narration. The only question is if you want to throw some challenges in their path and give them a chance to...

    5E One Punche Man Build. New Tasha's

    Assassin 17, Grave Cleric 2, Purple Worm poison. When the stars align (i.e., you're able to use channel divinity, then surprise your target, then your target fails its CON save): 12d6 x 2 (crit), plus modifiers, plus 12d6 poison, doubled for Assassin capstone, doubled again for Grave Cleric...

    General (Anecdotal) conversations with Asian gamers on some problems they currently face in the D&D world of RPG gaming

    Attempts to resolve these problems of cultural discrimination are going to be messy and imperfect, and which aspects of the problem get addressed in what order is going to be contentious and fraught with contradiction and paradox. Lots of mistakes are going to be made along the way. What I...

    Maybe. If the DM is modifying the creature to make it more interesting/surprising.

    5E How can you add more depth and complexity to skill checks?

    Ok, but everything in this discussion should apply (shouldn't it?) to both ability checks with a related skill proficiency, and to ability checks without a related skill proficiency. So having the discussion in the context of "skill checks" would suggest that it's excluding straight ability...
